Who are we

Kasih Hospice Care Society (KHC) is a non-profit organisation which provides emotional and medical support to terminally ill patients, as well as lend out medical equipment to those in need of it, regardless of race or religion and all free of charge.

First established in 1997, our volunteers visit hospitals and offer companionship to patients facing end-of-life at three General Hospitals every week and we also have a medical team of a registered doctor and 4 nurses, providing medical care to patients at home at no cost to patients.

Our services

Our services are all free of charge.

Criteria for consideration for KHC’s patient home-care (KHC has no in-patient facility) by our medical team are :
1. Referral by a doctor to state that has patients needs palliative care ( prognosis of less than 6 months )
2. Lives in Petaling Jaya, Bangsar, Brickfields, TTDI

Kasih Foundation promotes and organizes activities that help people to live fully, both physically and mentally. Through its Kasih Place, it conducts training in self-development, giving emotional support to others and Buddhist philosophy on universal compassion in dealing with living and dying. As it believes that people who live fully, eventually die well. The types of activities include:

  • Meditation
  • Cooking and eating healthily
  • Support groups for care givers and patients
  • Spirituality in Health

Our needs

As a non profit charity organisation, Kasih Foundation depends on public support. However, public fund-raising is labour intensive and taxing on the public who are already facing financial challenges. Kasih Laman Sdn Bhd was therefore established to manage and operate Kasih Place to fund Kasih Hospice’s free-of-charge services and other free community services of the Foundation. In this way, the Foundation aims to enable KHC and its public-serving activities to enjoy a higher degree of self-funding and self-sustenance

Updates

Currently, we have vacancies for full time doctor and nurse with experience.
